I live in my own world. I have thoughts that most people cannot reconcile.
I myself seeking perfection more than ever, and more than ever the lack of is making me withdraw from the world.

Just read an article about A&F not selling pant sizes larger than a size 10 in their stores and the CEO further explains he wants to sell clothes to ‘attractive, cool people.’ So of course this lead to 1000 people saying ‘Shame on him, I hope they go out of business.’ Inevitably this trickles down to the 21st century topic of ‘loving someone for who they are, not their weight’ and blah blah. Then this becomes ‘we should just accept people and ourselves for who we are.’ Fucking…. BULLSHIT. Accept yourself for who you are?! I’m sorry, but that’s always sounded like a fucking excuse to me. I’m so sick of fat people and their over exuberant sense of pride. “Curves make a real woman, There is just more to love.” How many times have you heard a fat person put a skinny girl down? How many times have you heard them say ‘oh, you just gonna throw that up later? Or “Skinny girls are anorexic, its gross.” I’ve heard fat people complain about smokers, and that shit is a complete hypocrisy since obesity now kills more than lung cancer. But we cant openly criticize overweight people? When did the world become such a neutered, passive aggressive Pomeranian? Cool, love yourself for who you are, and love the good things you have to offer, but dont stop there. Dont be afraid to look in the mirror and see negative and positive. Praise yourself for the positive, and make a list with the negative… Then fix that shit. I look back on myself constantly, and I have a million things I’m working on, but the progress I have made in the last few years is astounding to me. I’ve never once had the attitude, ‘oh well, this is who I am, this is who I will always be.’ Oh Hell no. In reality, not everyone gets a 1st place trophy, not everyone is a winner, and not everyone lives happily ever after. The ones that receive any of those accolades worked their asses off.
Girls get mad that guys can sleep around and not be considered a slut. Guys get mad that girls sleep around. Girls if you want to sleep around, then you’re going to be considered a slut. Thats the way the world works. Take responsibility for your own actions. Dont try and justify something because a man does it. Men do it because we are insecure and think we’ll be more accepted by our ‘bro’s’ if we fuck a lot of chicks. Girls sleep around looking for another soul that will posses them and shelter them from the cruel world of being a girl. My stance? Sex is sacred. Sharing anything with strange partners or people takes away its value. But sharing it with someone special, someone who makes you feel lost, and found, at the same time is profound. Its not about a number, its about intent.
